Hi. I'm Colin Littler I'm 68 and I have just cycled from Lands end to John O'Groats. 973 miles in 9 days.
I want to give a big shout out and thank you to Chloe Hart at Bodyworks for her wonderful Pilates classes, first on Zoom then in real life which gave a huge boost to my flexibility and core strength which helped me stay on my bike for up to 10 hours a day for 9 consecutive days.
During my training for the event Chloe's skills as a Sports Massage Therapist were extremely useful in sorting any injuries or strains that developed and I can highly recommend her professionalism and knowledge.
Three years ago, I had a sever episode of sciatica. I was unable to work for 3 months and pain seriously affected every aspect of my life keeping me awake at night, restricting movement and creating a low mood.
I was in such distress. Chloe's approachable, warm, friendly character helped me ask for help. Seeing Chloe for massage helped me enormously! Incorporating stretches she suggested and starting Pilates classes with Chloe helped strengthen my core and protect my back.
Gradually over several months the pain subsided; my movement and mobility were restored. With Chloe's help, my problem has been solved. I live a normal lifestyle and massage and Pilates are an integral part of it. Thank you!!
Before trying Pilates, I had constant pain in my lower back. It was always there and limited my movement, my sleep and my activity levels.
Gong into my first class, I was worried I wouldn't be able to complete the class as it had been so long since I had done any exercise.
The day after my first class I realised I had never been in Less pain in my life! It was the best feeling!
Chloe's Pilates class is a lot of fun and it's not your typical kind of exercise classe. It's more engaging and Chloe makes it easy to follow, even on Zoom!
This is the best Pilates class I have done. It is challenging but really rewarding with great guidance from Chloe. It's really friendly and doesn't matter if you're a bit stiff like me. It always makes me feel better.
Chloe's been my go to massage therapist for a number of years now. I can't recommend her highly enough.
Before trying Pilates, I had pain in my upper and lower back and poor posture while sitting at my desk at work, which made the pain worse.
I was nervous about attending my first class as I didn't know anyone take the class. But I was excited to try something new!
After my first class I started to be aware of my body posture, muscles and balance and how I was using them daily.
Chloe's Pilates class is relaxing and mentally gives me a break from the world. I'm happy that questions are encouraged and welcomed and value what I'm learning about my body and how I move.
